Want to join some of your neighbors and talk about a good book? Lakeport has an informal book
club that is always open to new members. No master’s degree in literature is required (not even a bachelor’s!), and no grades are given. Just read the selected book and then participate in a lively, lighthearted discussion. We meet monthly on the third Monday evening (except for this month) from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00-ish. We normally rotate among members’ homes, but during Covid-19, book club discussions are being held via Zoom, with the conference link sent in the reminder email before the meeting. Call Barbara Khan at 703-390-0506 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Here is the February selection:
